Darwin Animal Doctors


Save the Galapagos with Art

Lucy Dimitrova, Social Media and Art

We are all different and we all have different skills and talents that, if used wisely, can help both ourselves and the world around us. Darwin Animal Doctors is a typical example of this – a group of dedicated individuals with different skills and occupations, but all of them sharing one aim – to preserve the Galapagos and ensure the future of these precious islands.


To be honest, I have only heard about the charm of this unique ecosystem. Volunteering for DAD has given me the opportunity to hear a lot of stories and see many beautiful photos from this heaven-like place, but I have never got the opportunity to see it myself yet. Despite that, I can surely say that I am in love with this place and I hope that one day I will be able to enjoy the magic of Darwin’s favorite islands firsthand.

Although I have many different passions, I can put a hand on my heart and say that animals have always been my biggest one. Born in a pretty unique place as well, I spent my childhood roaming around wild mountain forests and observing the magical natural world around me. This gave me the chance to get close to many amazing creatures that a lot of people my age have never heard about.

My love for animals suddenly set the beginning of another passion – my passion for art. I was so impressed by wildlife and the animals I encountered every day that I needed a way to express my admiration. And what a better way to express your feelings, than art?

So I started drawing animal sketches. Soon my simple, one-hour sketches became more complicated, more professional pieces of art. My art gave me the chance to meet many people who, like me, were impressed by the magical animal world and who, surprisingly, were impressed by my art too.

And this is how it all started. I realized art can be used for good too, I realized art is a huge weapon that, if used wisely, can be a force for positive change in the world. Now I want to use my art to make the world a better place, help DAD in saving one of the most amazing places on Earth and also help myself get into college and keep developing my skills.

My artwork is now available for purchase through Fine Art America. Here you can buy beautiful prints of my drawings, paintings and photographs, and help me make the world a better place!
